Teenage TV

I was noticing the other day that I have turned into a teenager. No it wasn't because I was sexting or stealing prescription painkillers (why? do you have some?), it is my TV watching.
Apparently instead of my taste in television maturing, it is regressing. Why do I say that? Here is my list of favs right now:

90210- Bev Hills and I go back. WAAYY back. So far back I remember when the "teenage" cast only had small receding hairlines and Brenda had thick bangs to cover her even-more-thick eyebrows and crooked eyes.
I still love this show. I am sad to admit it though.

Vampire Diaries- New show this year and I am in looove. Although I read the twilight books, I am not a vampire storyline fan, but I gave this a whirl and I love it.

True Life Docs- I love these documentaries on MTV. It is pretty much the only thing MTV is good for these days. I had breast implants, I am embarrassed by my parents, I have a secret life online- whatever it is bring it and I will watch.

Speaking of MTV, did you see the new show they are premiering later this month? Jersey Shore? Oh, sweet lord it is getting harder and harder to defend NJ against these revolting docu-dramas that take place in NJ. Yes NJ has Guidos but the population has plummeted since the mid 90s. I swear.

Where do they find these people?
And yes, I will be watching.
I think my only redeeming TV watching quality is that I stopped watching soap operas 13 years ago.


  1. I'm still a loyal BH 9'er! I honestly planned to break up with it after the end of last season because I got a little old lady thing in me when the audio mix on it was so loud you couldn't hear the dialogue, but I decided to give the premiere of this season a try, and actually think it's much better than last year. So, yep, age is just a TV channel...or something like that!

  2. I just found your blog days ago so I'm new....but I cannot wait for Jersey Shore! I am closer to 40 than 30-not completely revealing my age! :) And I lurve me some MTV docs and when I saw that Jersey Shore promo I nearly leaped out of my chair. I will tivo it and get the best season pass a girl can find. I grew up on the south side of Chicago so the Jersey boys resemble our south side Italian boys. HA!

    I only turn on the tv once all 3 kids are in bed and then I can't wait to watch my "shows". The only other shows I get into are The Office and Modern Family. Great writing on those!

  3. Bridget I LOVE the office & modern family. Those are my favorite non-teenaged shows!
    ADKOG- dun na na na- nana na na!!

  4. Where did the Guido's go?

  5. LOOOOVE Vampire Diaries! Are you Team Stefan or Team Damien?!

  6. Team stefan all the way. But I love Damien because he is BOONE from LOST afterall.....

  7. I am here to admit that I am totally addicted to Gossip Girl. I'm in my late thirties. I have shame!

    This is even worse than when I was on maternity leave with my oldest child and I got hooked on Dawson's Creek. At least that show was relatively wholesome.
